What's On Your Workdesk ? Wednesday #116-Peel Better Soon



My crafty room is such a mess, do you think I can use this excuse ????


What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #116

I thought I might change things up a wee bit and show you this shelf that is to the left of my desk. I have been stacking all my new stamps there so I won't forget what is new...OH MY, I think I better get stamping! You can see some new Penny Black stamps, some new Peanuts, A brand new bicycle Hero Arts stamps set and a whole pile of House Mouse (no surprise there right?) Oh and looky at that fun little Great Impressions Halloween stamp right up front! (some little ghosties lounging on a fence) I think I need to get busy!  The old wooden pop case used to hold my copics, but now holds some SU circle punches and some misc tools.

I am also going to show you the card below that I was working on for last weeks' WOYWW. Finally finished it up and it will be flying to one of my stamping friends whose sweetie is sick. Tried to make it a little more manly than my normal cards. A funny thing happened tonight...I was putting the finishing touches on this card and who should leave a comment on my blog but my friend with the ill sweetie. We must have been sending vibes to each other across the USA!

I picked this little stamp set up at the CKScrapbook Convention this spring.  I used the Monthly Sketch For You To Try for August 2011.

peel better soon


Well I am off to bed...a long day. Went to the big city for my daughters wedding dress fitting...oh she is so pretty! She is getting married on 11-11-11.  Should you have any neat wedding ideas, please feel free to share!

Stop over and say Hello to Julia at The Stamping Ground, she always loves to hear from new players!

I love those bicycle stamps. I have no luck with clear stamps, though. But I sure like the designs. They are very artsy. That's a cute card. Now I understand the title of your post. Have a great WOYWW.

Oh how I love a family wedding. So much joy. On the eleventh day huh - our Remembrance Day ( I think you have Veteran's Day)..how marvellous and not actually very far away now!
As for keeping the new stamps separate so you remember...if it was mine, it would be labelled:
TO GLOAT OVER. !!

Jovita said...

Look at all those fun stamps you have waiting to be used, looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

I used to keep all my new stamps stacked as well until my new pile was unmanageable!

Such a cute card, love the wood grainy papers.

Some lovely stamps on your desk, I am looking for a horse stamp and I can see you have a rather lovely one there. I love the 'peel' better too!
This is my first visit to your delightful blog but I think the first of many visits. I found you on WOYWW, feel free to pop by and see me if you have a few minutes spare.

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, stop! Peel better soon? Too funny, and a too cute card! I keep my new, not yet used stamps in a basket... but do I get around to using them? Hoping that will change. Good luck with yours. Looking forward to seeing the uber cute cards you'll be making with your new stuff!

Elizabeth said...

I keep vowing to work through my new stamps, and just occasionaly I do break one out, but mostly they sit glowering down at me from a neglected shelf. I'm always being distracted during a cleaning session so that isn't an excuse, it's a mantra! That's an awesome date to marry on - it's our Armistice Day, aka Rememberance Day. Love that sentiment - peel better soon - perfect with the little monkey image. Great post. elizabeth x #51

Ida said...

Lucky you with all those new goodies waiting to be played with!
Love, Love, Love that excuse about the messy room - Works for me.
Your card is so cute and I'm sure will cheer the recipient up.

Spyder said...

This is sooo cute, love the monkey and I'll have to borrow that sentiment one day soon!
Sorry, sooo late, with my woyww, but at least my spell checker is working now, can't do without that, and I can type a bit faster!!
I've just found some stuff I forgot I had too, there's no way I have time to tidy up and play with the stuff!
(Lyn) Happy late woyww
